If I stall out while writing, I try a couple different things:
1.) Change the scene into another character's perspective. What are their motives? Where do they take the story?
2.) Write some backstory on the side to help me understand history and motivations.
3.) Sleep with the story questions on my mind and, fingers crossed, wake up with some clarity.
4.) Read about writing.
5.) Write right through it.(less)

Add a sequence...this goes here, that goes there. Change things around to find the right fit. It's like a puzzle. Click the pieces together and a story happens. Set aside the border pieces, find the pattern, and discover another world. Keep building! It's very satisfying to see it all come together.(less)

Fabulous Five: Favorite Reads for 2020

Goodreads Reading Challenge
100%

Whew! One tough year in review since I scrambled to the one hundred mark just in the nick of time. Was it lack of focus? Was it the difficulty getting library books with Governor Jay Inslee's lockdown? Was it the more-than-usual people milling around the house during the day? 

I dunno, but all the same, I managed and lined up my top five favorites for 2020. Check

"I am completely biased when it comes to this book. The Norwegian influence alone makes me love it. My daughter, Caroline, who is two, enjoyed it as well.

The pictures add more life to the story. And I wish I could find that outfit for Caroline to wear" Read more of this review »

“To cheer us up on our first day on the road I made jam sandwiches for breakfast and they tasted hopeful.”
Meg Rosoff, How I Live Now

“Inej cast a meaningful glance at his cane. "Have a long trip down," she said, then leapt onto the banister, sliding from one flight to the next, slick as butter in a pan.”
Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows

“Kaz leaned back. "What's the easiest way to steal a man's wallet?"
"Knife to the throat?" asked Inej.
"Gun to the back?" said Jesper.
"Poison in his cup?" suggested Nina.
"You're all horrible," said Matthias.”
Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows

“I'm a business man," he'd told her. "No more, no less."
"You're a thief, Kaz."
"Isn't that what I just said?”
Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows

“I do," Ellie said, then groaned inwardly. Those were the words that had put her in this position in the first place.”
